THE GREAT NORTH (s2) Starts January 11, Tuesdays at 8pm and watch On Demand FOX8 [108] In the small town of Lone Moose, Alaska, fisherman Beef Tobin (voiced by Nick Offerman) does his best to keep his four kids close – especially artistically inclined 16-year-old daughter Judy (Jenny Slate). With her mother out of the picture, the sensitive teen seeks guidance from her boss, mall glamour photographer Alyson (Offerman’s wife Megan Mullally – of Will & Grace fame), and her imaginary rock-star friend (Alanis Morissette as herself), who appears to Judy in the Northern Lights, wearing her trademark beanie and dishing out pearls of wisdom. “I didn’t know at first whether it was going to be a quick cameo or… an invitation into the circus of it all,” says Morissette. “So I’m happy to…

I’m going for the ‘bottle it all up and turn it into a bitter little ball’ approach”– DI Humphrey Goodman (Kris Marshall) DECODED: Disorganised and prone detective Humphrey is proudly partial to a nice cup of tea and repressing his accident-feelings. “As soon as I’ve solved this case and I’ve got my luggage, I’m on the next plane home”– DI Richard Poole (Ben Miller) DECODED: For DI Poole – the lead detective in seasons one and two – the tropical climate of the Caribbean wasn’t his happy place. “There is something…
